Willsburg at the platform
Tim Garner named his station Willsburg in honor of his son and Harrisburg. The concourse over the tracks is scratchbuilt from styrene to duplicate Pennsylvania Station in Baltimore. It has a detailed interior and removable roof. The flat for the main station building was kitbashed from two Walthers bank kits. The platforms are made from Walthers brick sheet and styrene strips. The umbrella sheds started as Walthers kits. Tim wanted higher clearance so he used styrene tubing for the posts with roof braces cut from the shorter poles in the kits. The poles serve as conduit for the lighting wires. Tim added a styrene roof over the wiring on top of the sheds and used styrene angle to dress the edges. The stairs themselves are resin castings mounted in scratchbuilt styrene stairwells. The gray paint is Testors Gull Gray Flat – a good concrete color. Still to come are people, baggage, and baggage carts.
